Stéphanie Montreux quotes
- (On why she sang Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again' live for Shanghai Radio) So my crush on Andrew Lloyd Webber isn't a good enough reason? ... I just want him to give me all his, er, big parts!
- (On introducing boyfriends to theatre - BBC Interview) So far I haven't had to, thank goodness: they've all been already in the industry. I'm lucky enough to find them ready-made.
- (Describing what it is like to have synesthesia in a Q&A session) Okay, so let's say, days of the week: Monday is yellow; Tuesday is quite a deep red; Wednesday is sort of a grass green; Thursday is a much darker green but still quite bright; Friday has always confused me, it's either a very dark purple, blue or grey; Saturday is white; and Sunday is sort of a light peach colour.
